A Sparkling Birthday!

Hey everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend!  Today's card is celebrating red, white & blue!

Jen Carter Sparkling Pachyderm Birthday Angle

I thought it would be fun to pull out my Ombre Stripes Paper Pad for this card since it represents so many of the blue & red hues so perfectly!  I used the Lil' Inker Designs On the Diagonal die to cut the strip across the middle that I stamped the sentiment from Balloon Builders on.

Jen Carter Sparkling Pachyderm Birthday Closeup

I die cut the cute little elephant with the Party Pachyderm dies, and then stamped the coordinating image from the Party Pachyderm stamp set.  I adhered it with dimensionals.  I die cut several sizes of the Seasonal Stars die set from glitter paper and then also adhered them with dimensionals.  I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for a little more sparkle & shine.  I think that it looks a little like fireworks shooting off to celebrate a birthday!

I am entering this card in a few challenges this week.

I'm also entering this at the Craft Garden's Beach Color Challenge.

Thank you for visiting today!  Have a great one!
